    Default Divine Dragon Cult Leader Hung On Tung died a pathetic death for his status.

    Divine Dragon Cult Leader Hung On Tung was the most powerful fighter in the wulin of his time (late 1600s; early Qing Dynasty), and led one of the most fearsome wulin sects of the period. His demise, however, was kind of pathetic: cuckolded by his wife and Wai Siu Bo...his sect splintering in revolt...his base destroyed by the cannon of the Qing navy. It all went to hell very quickly for Cult Leader Hung, and his end seemed quite pitiful for one who had, until very recently, appeared so powerful.

    I see it as a reflection of the time. In any pre-gunpowder era he would have been an important person, but in the Qing era the wide range use of gunpowder weapons started making people like him redundant.

    He is the allegory of imperial China, once powerful but now stagnant and obsolete, eventually succumbing to technological, social and political advances. The ships and canons are Western forces. The sect members are the Xinhai revolution.
